DV Survivor Arts-Craft Day!!!

  • This was grabbing off of FB, wanted to get the word out as far and wide as possible in hopes that all Survivors that would like to contribute can do so!  If you have any questions, please contact that the Texas Survivor Caucus.  Hope to see some wonderful artwork going in this year!  Here’s just 2 of the gorgeous ones made last year!

  • As a part of the Texas Survivor Caucus (a part of the TCFV CANs), we are pleased to announce that we are gathering together for a cost of $16 per person attending to make survivor art to contribute Survivor Art to the Texas Council of Family Violence's State Conference inSeptember. All art prepared really should be to the TCFV by July 16th, but they made an exception for those attending this Survivor Art Craft Day.
    The $16 cost includes any/all art supplies at the studio to create your survivor art. No need to bring your own; just show up, pay your $16 fee at the door, and put your creative mind to the work!!! The theme of the artwork is "What Survivorship Means to You"; if you aren't a survivor yourself, then "How I have been affected by Domestic Violence".
    Kathryn Elizabeth Krastin is the lead on this Survivor Craft Day and will take your contributions to the TCFV office the following Monday for you. If you can't afford to pay the cost, please let Kathryn Elizabeth Krastin know; we may be able to offer a limited amount of scholarship for the coverage of the fee.
    If you can't attend, the details for you to submit your artwork is as is below if you are still interested in doing a project for the event, but we encourage all those in the Greater Austin Area to attend.
    The exhibit will be displayed for all TCFV’s statewide conference participants, presenters, and UT Austin students. We hope the conference participants will have the opportunity to expand their view of the complexities of family violence, resiliency of survivors, and envision violence free future with individuals, families, and communities.
